I’ve always loved street art. Every wall painted out in the streets has its merits, from the crude ones created by untrained artists to the masterpieces of giants like Diego Rivera. Queens, New York has its mural heaven in Wellington Court. The famous site flaunts over 150 murals painted by artists from all around the world.

Photographer David Katzenstein has been photographing these colorful murals as part of The Welling Court Mural Documentation Project. In 2017, the photographer and Editorial Director Gay Feldman began working with Garrison Buxton, the founder of The Welling Court Mural Project. The goal is to explore the relationship between the 150 murals, the neighborhood and its surroundings.

The eclectic collection of murals is the perfect canvas to express a multitude of voices, themes, and artistic styles. They shape and transform public spaces creating an incredible range of experiences. They are a universal open dialogue between artists, spaces, and the public. They do both, witness and record our fleeting story. They are an integral part of New York City’s character which must be preserved at least in still images.

That is precisely what The Welling Court Mural Documentation Project aims to do. Read more about this and other initiatives at The Human Experience Project website.
